sahara style? i have a black sahara, they look great! but i'm not sure it's because it's like the body color or because their black.

On the other hand you can't go wrong with black, and if you paint them with a non-glossy rough texture, it will be somewhat of scratch resistant

IMO...If you are planing to maintain a stock look then "yes" paint them if not then "don't". Matter of preference.

I think they would only look good if they were the saharah style because the saharah flares are smooth.
There is a higher chance that the paint won't last long on the textured flares
just a thought...

Its not a Sahara. So its textured. They are also fadded. So I was thinking a simple black not gloss. Maybe matte? Or would plasti dip look good because I'm also doing rims plasti dipped
